NVDA losing focus

Janet Brandly

Hello all,


I’m running the last stable release of NVDA, the latest update of Windows 10 and Office 365. For the last few weeks I’ve been having some major problems with NVDA seeming to lose focus. Some examples are when submitting forms on websites, working with Outlook, navigating between different file levels with WE, and occasionally when working with PDF documents. NVDA just stops speaking. If I’m on a website toggling in and out of browse mode doesn’t help. This is very annoying and is slowing me down significantly. I have to alt-tab through open windows until NVDA regains its focus. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated. I’m doing a pretty demanding online course right now. I’d like to continue using NVDA for this course and when/if I find work, but I’ve got to solve this problem.


Thank you,
